The word 'Engineering' is derived from the Latin word for 'Ingenuity' which simply means creative problem-solving.

The terms of 'Success' are unique to each individual but will ultimately be the progressive realisation of some ideal, desired outcome.

On some level, we all practise engineering in our pursuits of our individual definitions of success.


I apply my skills to develop and coach high-performing leaders who can engineer the outcomes they want most across life, work and business.

Career Journey, Qualifications and Certifications

I've been formally trained in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering with experience working across the Caribbean, Europe and North America.

In 2010, I started my career in the role of Process Improvement Specialist following a Graduate Engineer Programme designed to develop future General Managers at one of the largest manufacturing conglomerates in the Caribbean. 

As a prospective future executive in the group, I was fortunate to be trained and mentored by senior executives in all aspects of business operations, including the world-class Coca-Cola Business Systems.

Beyond my subsequent entrepreneurial experience of creating tech-driven businesses since 2015, I've also been awarded various global Business and Leadership Certifications, including the Maxwell Leadership Certification as a Coach, Speaker and Trainer in 2013.

As a Leadership Coach and Advisor, I naturally specialise in helping Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology companies but I've supported a range of other types of organisations including some in the Financial Services sector.

My expertise, network and resources allow me to help business owners, CEOs and senior business leaders cement their A-Game for sustained personal and leadership excellence in shaping organisational excellence while also helping them to develop competent leaders at all levels

As a trusted partner and advisor to our clients,  the solutions I offer revolve around the focal points of optimum Leadership and Human Performance and typically combine speaking, advising, coaching and training leveraged by technology and media.

Life Engineer
Leadership Solutions

My career experience, training and perspective means that I naturally excel most at working with business owners, corporate managers and professionals with backgrounds or careers in S.T.E.M. and those who share an appreciation for the application of processes, systems and problem-solving to drive results.

FOR INDIVIDUALS

I work with corporate professionals, managers and business owners who want to design and build a life that aligns with their true desires and peak potential to become high-performing leaders who can reverse engineer their ultimate vision of personal and professional success.

FOR ORGANISATIONS

I partner with business owners, executives and HR Leaders to develop and coach high-performing managers at all levels who can lead organisational excellence via the combination of "people and process" to overcome costly issues like poor productivity, culture, retention and waste.

METHOD OVERVIEW
(What do I bring to the table?)

To support clients, I leverage my blended expertise in Problem-solving, Process Excellence and accelerated People Development using our proprietary Life Engineer Coaching Methods and Frameworks, digital systems and media, world-class licensed resources from global thought leaders, an associate network of trusted experts and access to a global community of like-minded, growth-oriented leaders striving to live, work and lead at their best.

I think mastery of the leadership balance of "People and Process" is essential in driving exceptional individual and organisational performance. I also believe it's important for leaders to align their professional pursuits with the vision for their personal life to operate at their best. 

Here are a few thoughts on this in this introductory video below...

INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS

  • I work with corporate professionals, managers and owners to help them accelerate becoming the leader they need to be to engineer their definition of success in life, career and business . I guide the design of strategic, big-picture life plans based on individual personality, strengths, desires and vision which are then strategically implemented to reverse-engineer the outcome supported by ongoing coaching, training, accountability and a like-minded community to ensure effective execution and meaningful progress.
  • Beyond my contributions to leading publications and podcasts, I leverage my Life Engineer frameworks and concepts to help corporate professionals and business leaders to stay 'on top of their game' through public content, online courses, micro-learning workshops, webinars and communities in order to maintain the levels of growth and performance required for continued success in a world that is constantly evolving at an increased speed with greater demands and distractions.

My 7 Master Keys For The Modern High-Performance Leader

"An organisation will never outperform its leaders.


From personal experience, training and observations, I believe that the 'Modern Leader' must strive to excel in these key areas in order to drive top performance:
 

- DREAM PURPOSEFULLY of a vision and future destination worthy of pursuit;

- THINK PRACTICALLY of strategic ways to convert vision to reality;

- LEAD PEOPLE on a journey of growth towards that clear, inspiring vision;
- LEVERAGE PROCESSES to maximise productivity and minimise human failure;
- SUSTAIN PERFORMANCE of self and others to achieve human potential;
- SOLVE PROBLEMS by eliminating their root causes to prevent recurrence;

- BE PHILANTHROPIC to the benefit of humanity alongside profitability.


The Modern Leader strives to succeed in both life and work as (Aligned, Balanced and Competent) ABC Leaders with a CEO mentality to create desired positive change in any environment while truly enjoying the spectrum of life itself.


The fundamentals of leadership are timeless and unchanging. The art of their application must continuously evolve in the face of fast-changing environments.


I think the leaders of this will be both creative and critical, versed in multiple disciplines like the disruptors who shaped the Renaissance era.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND PHILANTHROPY

My personal mission is to make a positive global impact via my skills and leave a legacy of re-imagining the application of engineering to people and business development.

In my private time, you may find me periodically using my skills to help children prepare for future success via educational, personal development programmes and media within my Pilly Pelican brand or at I Am A Girl NGO, founded by my wife.

Prevention is better than correction. Shaping behavioural patterns is easier than breaking and reforming them. 

In my character as "Engineer Greg", I lead the design and creation of educational resources and programmes which cover the same concepts that I share with adults but delivered in a more child-friendly, fun and engaging style.

Content primarily focuses on S.T.E.M. and Personal Development (Life Engineer) topics such as:

  • Leadership & Self-Belief
  • Entrepreneurship & Financial Literacy
  • Productivity & Goal-setting
  • Communication & Teamwork
